Am spending several hours this morning having a mass screen sort out of my screen prints. A job I've been meaning to do for ages! (years!) My prints are in 5 plan chests, some are here and some are still at home. I'm now getting them into some sort of order of ones I'm urgently selling, ones that I could sell (but haven't yet listed), ones that I don't want to sell and a few seconds. My precious book shown here contains lists of all the screen prints I've ever done and the numbers I've printed / sold etc… it's so precious as it documents everything I've done and I can see which ones have been more popular than others etc.. It's also like a diary of the past 6 years work.
I started collecting these super ceramic figures when I used to live in Brighton and be involved with the Open Houses. I treated myself to one new 'little man' a year as they remind me of my partner Jim with his love of stripes. Jim surprised me recently by getting me another - the far left, to add to my collection. They're made by Jane Muir.
Nothing gives me more pleasure than trying out a new screen print onto fabric. Here's my new 'Birdsong' design shortly to be made into cushions, bags and prints. I was singing one of my favourite 'Be Good Tanyas' songs - the littlest birds sing the prettiest songs…..
Here are some vibrant collages to cheer you all up win this terrible rainy weather! I did these a while ago and am thinking of possibly screen printing them or getting them printed as prints. These are all quite large in size as I love working on a larger scale.
Jim's spent the last few days making a wonderful handy rack to store all our silk screens. They've been stacked on the floor up until now so he's made a large structure for all the various size screens and it's great. He's going to paint it white, add castors and make the long flat side a notice board.
We now have to rent this studio forever as I've a feeling it won't fit through the door!
